Sterling L. Cathala is an unpublished writer based in Petaluma, CA. He practices the craft of prose poetry, sudden fiction, flash fiction, short fiction, short-short fiction, and short-short-short fiction. His influences are Raymond Carver and Richard Brautigan, and also young blondes and aged beer. He hopes to be published before he dies (that is at the top of his list), but if that fails, he hopes to "make it" with an asian girl. If that doesn't work out, there are always blondes and beer.
